I found a few outfits I hadn’t posted or Insta’d so I thought I’d share them with you. I always like seeing styling ideas from other bloggers. Both outfits are all J Crew.
I had a little time in the week to head to the Factory store (um….twice) to make some returns and check out the new arrivals. Promos changed from “everything in the store up to 50% off” to “…60% off”. I’ll be breaking this up into a few different posts as there was so many things I tried on. I really loved this latest Factory Roll-out.
Boy Jean, size 28 – These are supposed to be the Factory version of the Vintage Straight Jean. My size in those is 28 so I grabbed the same for the Factory. These just fit in this size but I think the size 29 would be too loose. I wasn’t looking for these and just tried on in case those of you aren’t near a Factory store. My verdict is to size down if you are looking for a super casual Saturday pair.
Skinny Ankle Jean in Dark Rinse, size 29 & 30 – I ordered these in the Northport Wash during the Early Access. I saw them in-store as well as the Classic Rinse and preferred the Classic Rince instead. I’m a 30 in the Toothpick Jeans but have been sizing to a 29 in the Factory version. You can see the size 30 are bunchy in the front. They get a little loose throughout the day so the front would be really saggy at the end of the day in the size 30. Toothpick Jeans were 40% off on Saturday and then changed to 50% off on the next Wednesday.
Skimmer Pant in Chambray, size 6 – I have been searching for these as well and they finally arrived in last week’s roll-out. They are comfortable on and fit looser than the Skimmer Pant in Oxford that I ended up returning but only because I bought these instead. These were 50% off in-store both days.
We are still experiencing colder temps and an office visit on Thursday was a great reason to wear the Jeweled Chandelier Sweatshirt in Gray. I originally had the Ivory in a Small but felt I need a Medium instead. And the more I saw the Best Buy Commercial with Maya Rudolph the more I wanted the Gray. I was able to find it on a pop-back in the Medium. I paired it with the Toothpick in Coated Denim and my Louboutin Melisa booties.
I have been successful in finding “old school Crew” items, including several Lexington Blazers. I found this skirt (Kassie Mini Skirt, I think) from Holiday 2006 on ebay a few weeks ago. On Friday, I paired it with a GAP Tee, the Mini-Bows Sweatshirt and my Harper Boots. I thought this was very cute and Holiday-ish.
Friday brought a crazy cold spell with the high temp happening at 1 a.m. and then dropping from there. It also brought rain which made the day cold and dreary. But, I was happy that I could finally bundle up, layer, wear sweaters and boots!
Bundled Bella…that’s me!
Have a Great Evening! Stay bundled!
